Sunset! ->->-> Sunrise!

On the Columbia River
From Maryhill State Park--that is Mt. Hood in the far distance (in Oregon), the Biggs Bridge in the near distance. The Biggs Bridge crosses the Columbia between Washington and Oregon, but is currently closed for maintenance and upgrading necessitating a detour or altenate route for those traveling north and south in the central parts of both states.
That is Oregon on the other side--and that is a Great Blue Heron on the post in the river.

Wow, the colors in these photo's are gorgeous!! Are these taken from the Columbia Gorge?? I drive that area from Tri-Cities to Portland all the time, we have family in both places. I've never seen it look pink like that though.

Nice, great job!!!

I enjoyed them all too because they are of two of my favorite places BUT the reflection in the Columbia really sets them off in the last two.

Katney, they are all such beautiful photos. Mt.Hood, although not prominent, is an important focal point.

Beautiful sunset skies ~ both amber and blush are breathtaking. Biggs is closed? Wow, that certainly makes for a looong detour!
